Try rinsing with warm salt water.  It will help the gums heal.  Sorry for the pain.

That's actually part of the post-op regimine. Thanks though.

It's all very weird - like you have one massive tooth that aches along the entire gum.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Congrats, goldie.  Is this kind of like West Point or the Naval Academy?  Do they give students full scholarships?  At the U.S. counterparts, students receive full tuition and a stipend, so it's very competitive to gain access.

I hope your son flourishes there, but I'm sure you have lots to do in preparation now.

I would say West Point as it produces Officers for the Army

Do they give students full scholarships?  At the U.S. counterparts, students receive full tuition and a stipend, so it's very competitive to gain access.

He has 18 months training to be a officer and he / they have to sign up to join the Army. They dont get tuition or scholarships, just paid a wage as a working person would.

I hope your son flourishes there, but I'm sure you have lots to do in preparation now.

Me too  ;D ;D
We know a few ex serving personnel who have helped him with sound advice and he is actively fit and healthy. Main problem is he still lives like a student and has a floor robe  :o :o :o.
Wants to go in the Engineers and hopefully help with any humanitarian disasters where the Army will be offered.

Jobs are a little tight ATM for what he did want due to 2 years of covid, So fingers crossed  8)

Awaiting my DNA results from Ancestry.com.
Wife purchased for my birthday and will see how much Scottish/Irish and where ever else DNA in me.
Quite excited really as ATM they are extracting the DNA from the sample.
Only thing is they are very slow in doing the test results

This is presumably when you find that you aren't related to your mother, and three of your children have postman DNA?

I remember when the Pequots where on a global mission to find decendants (to share in their wealth) and this could be done due to the fact that all native american tribes had DNA with discernible differences. This was apparently opposed to European DNA that was "standard" across the countries so I wonder now how they can tell if you are 2.73% Lithuanian?

As it's essentially a math thing, whatever they tell will change over time.

Bloody hell Christ that one vanished quickly ( or did you think a tad inappropriate ???)
Anyway - You could be correct  ;D ;D
Alas my son is a Taller "mini me" and the daughter is also a "mini me" of my wife and the resemblance's are uncanny .
Spoiler (hover to show)
But my Friend has had one and he comes up more Germanic that anything.
I just wondered that's all and didnt what else I wanted for my birthday.
And Yes Smokes - "As it's essentially a math thing, whatever they tell will change over time" friend has regular updates which do change due to the amount of people taking the "test".

Sorry 8ull about the cold, Love a hot Totty which Jim Bean could be used for 8)
